Gacked from petulans

Do you like having your picture taken?

No. I'm not very photogenic.

Ever bought a CD for just one song?

God yes. It was actually a cassette. I was in a record store and heard Morrissey's "Late Night, Maudlin Street" on the store PA. I asked where the song was from, the salesclerk told me, et voila!. It turned out that Viva Hate is one hot little album. I had the same experience with Melissa Etheridge's Brave and Crazy album. That one made me a Melissa fan for life.

Do you read your horoscope?
Occasionally. I believe in horoscopes, but not the superficial newspaper ones. I think you have to have the complete chart done.

If you could only talk to one person online, who would that be?
Any of my wives, or peacey.

What colour is the inside of your head when you close your eyes?

Black with tiny gold dots. No, really.

Do you find you use Internet language when writing notes in real life?

No, but I do it when I talk. I say "wibble" alla time.

When you're talking do you ever use your hands to do quotation marks in the air when saying certain words?


Ever seriously questioned your sanity?

Not in a mental health sense. In a rhetorical sense, all the time.

When you dream do you see what's happening in a character's view or a camera type view?


Have you ever kept a New Year's resolution?

I don't know, probably not, but I resolve to do it next year. *g*

What was your school mascot?

My first, wonderful high school had a wildcat for a mascot. My second, yukky one had a dolphin. Ironic that I prefer dolphins to wildcats.

Do you wish your teeth were whiter?

I used to, when I was a child. I was given Tetracycline as a baby, and my teeth were brownish-coloured even as a small child. I used to get teased a lot. Now it just looks like coffee stains and nobody notices.

Do you laugh at your own jokes?

Sometimes, if I think they're funny.

What word instantly makes you smile/laugh?

Anything pretentious, like "painterly" or "bourgeosie"(which is pretentious just because of its spelling. It should be "buzhwasie". *shrugs*) And "proactive", although that one actually makes me cringe more than laugh.

When eating, are you more concerned with taste or healthiness?

Probably taste, although I find healthy foods tasty, for the most part.

Do you find you're different talking through IMs than face-to-face or on the telephone?

I'm more articulate online. I have ADD, and it shows IRL much more than through IMs or emails, where I have more of a chance to think before I respond.

How many phone numbers do you have remembered and can say off the top of your head?

Quite a few. Never counted.

What was the best Halloween costume you ever had?

When I was nine or ten, I was a cat. Homemade costume, tan parka with ears and a tail. Somewhere in the bowels of my mum's slide collection, there's a picture.

Do you cry when you laugh?

If I'm on laughing bent, yeah.

Can you limbo?

Nope. Never could. Am not v. coordinated.

You're a vampire; what's worse, never seeing a photo/reflection of yourself, never being able to eat or drink what's not blood, or never seeing sunlight again?

Oh, gods, the eating thing. I'm not too keen on looking in mirrors in general, and I like the night better than the day. But eating..I love it.

Do you say random stuff like "I like Snickers" when you are having a conversation about something totally different?

Constantly. It's an ADD thing. People who know me are used to it. For instance, I was involved in a VERY serious discussion with my kid's teacher this morning, and I randomly noticed a fish in the classroom tank was swimming oddly. I broke out of the conversation, said, "I think you have a sick fish", and returned to the conversation. Fortunately, this woman's known me for four years, so alles gut.

Have you ever cracked into somebody else's email?

Never, ever ever.

Do spelling errors bother you?


Name all Teletubbies right now:

I just know Tinky-Winky and LaLa.

Would you ever call someone a racist name?


Do you think Vlad is a cool name?

Yeah, especially for a girl. *g*

Did you know it is Dracula's first name?


What do you think is going to take over humans and rule the world?

Everything else. We're killing ourselves. We're doomed, eventually.

What is your IQ?

Lower than patchfire's, I'm sure.

Have you ever killed your own dinner?

Eww. No.

Would you prefer a spork or a spoon and fork?


If you choke a smurf, what colour does it turn?

You can't choke a Smurf. If you try it turns on you and eats your spicy brains.

Papa Smurf: loveable grandfather or crack-selling pimp?

Weren't they considering him for Dumbledore?

Favourite of the seven dwarves?

I dunno. Doc?

Do you like Wayne or Garth better?

I don't know which one's which.

What do you think of gold teeth?

Better than mercury fillings.

Ever laughed so hard that what you were drinking spewed out of your nose?

I don't think so.

Got milk?

Yes. Organic Skim.

Wasn't Josie and the Pussycats a stupid movie?

Never saw it. The show rocked, though.

Wasn't Shrek an awesome movie?

Yeah, from the parts I've seen of it.

What did you think of the movie Turner and Hooch?

Tom Hanks and a dog. That's all I know.

Have you ever checked out your own arse?

Um, yeah. It's impossible to miss.

What time did you wake up today?

8:47 a.m.

Have you ever dissected a frog?

No. I dissected a cat once, though.

Do you eat to live or live to eat?

A little of both, sometimes..

Would you eat SPAM for £5?


What's your favourite kind of muffin?

Chocolate cream cheese.

Would you like enough crackers to last you a year?

Who's offering?

Would you like enough beatings to last you a lifetime?

No beatings is enough to last me a lifetime, thanks.

Is the only way you can dance in a dark room with a strobe light?
No. I love dancing, though I suck at it.

Do you ever take stuff home with you from a hotel room?

Just the shampoo and pens and stuff they want you to take. No towels or linens.

What is your dream kiss like?

It'd be a kiss from someone I was deeply in love with. Other than that, no preference. Er, well, I'd like him/her to be older than 20 and younger than 60, and have decent breath.

The most romantic thing anyone has done for you was:

I don't remember. Been a while.
